Living in the Present

Model: Olesya

Concentrate on the present and on your present cares 
The futures is like climbing up a dark stairs 
You open a door and who knows what you’ll find 
The future will come and your past is behind. 

The past we look back on and often recall 
But the here and now matters to us most of all 
And though to look to the future is never a crime 
Tomorrow it will come on it’s own good time. 

You’ve heard of the story of the wealthy man 
To become the world’s wealthiest person his great future plan 
But now all is dark and so quiet where he lay 
On hindsight he ought to have lived for each day. 

My only desire is to pen better rhyme 
But even for that there may well not be time 
The clock on the wall it just keeps ticking on 
And the sky it is dark and the daylight has gone.
